Facebook opened to the public today... after committing myspace-icide, I guess it would hypocritical to sign up (and they're registration page wouldn't open, anyway.)

CNN Roundup - Chavez: Bush 'devil;' U.S. 'on the way down' - Sep 20, 2006
Read as CNN vilifies Hugo Chaves with the headline above and the line below. Ridiculous:

UNITED NATIONS (CNN) -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez tore into his U.S. counterpart and his U.N. hosts Wednesday, likening President Bush to the devil and telling the General Assembly that its system is "worthless."

"The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said, referring to Bush, who addressed the world body during its annual meeting Tuesday. "And it smells of sulfur still today."

Chavez accused Bush of having spoken "as if he owned the world" and said a psychiatrist could be called to analyze the statement. (Watch Hugo Chavez cross himself as he tells world leaders he can smell the devil -- 1:06)

And check out this missing link that was put there to confuse us by God, you silly creationist/intelligent design biotches!

NEW YORK (AP) -- Scientists have discovered a remarkably complete skeleton of a 3-year-old female from the ape-man species represented by "Lucy."

The discovery should fuel a contentious debate about whether this species, which walked upright, also climbed and moved through trees easily like an ape.

The remains are 3.3 million years old, making them the oldest known skeleton of such a youthful human ancestor.

And Lou Dobbs comes out against voting machines (below). Thank God! has only been ranting about this for five or six years...

But there is additional uncertainty about the outcome of our elections that is intolerable and inexcusable, and which could make the contested 2000 presidential election look orderly by comparison. As of right now, there is little assurance your vote will count. As we've been reporting almost nightly on my broadcast for more than a year, electronic voting machines are placing our democracy at risk.

Across the nation, eight out of every 10 voters will be casting their ballots this November on electronic voting machines. And these machines time and again have been demonstrated to be extremely vulnerable to tampering and error, and many of them have no voter-verified paper trail.

Whoa, New iTunes stuff

iTunes has finally incorporated some better Album Artwork technology. I'm still digging Clutter for displaying artwork on the desktop, finding artwork for me and allowing me to update, but the new cover browser in iTunes is much appreciated. Also, iTunes now allows you to right click and select "Get album Artwork". Sweet!

Bush Babbling Like an Idiot

Watch and learn as Lauer gives Bush the whatfor on torture... I still wish he'd pressed him a little harder, as Bush just kept reframing the question to babble on about protecting the American people from those who want to "kill your families".

Lauer: If waterboarding... if that was legal and within the law, why couldn't you do it at Guantanamo? Why'd you have to go to a secret location around the world?
Bush: Matt, I'm not going to talk about techniques. And I'm not going to explain to the enemy what we're doing. All I'm telling you is that you asked if we're doing things to protect the American people and I want the American people to know we are doing so.
Lauer: Are you concerned that in using these techniques you're blurring the lines between us and the people we're fighting against?
Bush: The best information we can get is from people we take off the battlefield so we can act on it. So we can stop plots before they happen.
Whatever we have done is legal. That's what I'm saying. It's within. the law. We had lawyers look at it. They said, "Mr. President, this is lawful." That's all I'm going to tell you. I'm not going to tell you specifically what's done because I don't want the enemy to adjust. This... We're at war! These are people who want to come and kill your families. And I'm confident that the American people understand that.

Bush invokes 9/11 to argue for Iraq war - Yahoo! News

From his speech last night that was "non-political in nature":

If we yield Iraq to men like bin Laden, our enemies will be emboldened, they will gain a new safe haven, and they will use Iraq's resources to fuel their extremist movement. We will not allow this to happen.

Bush invokes 9/11 to argue for Iraq war:

This can't be good...

Situation Called Dire in West Iraq
Don't forget the moment of silence at 8:46am.
This morning Bush called Ground Zero a "fantastic place... of healing". What an idiot.

I haven't been able to keep up with the blog in the last few weeks... 140+ hrs in 10 days at work have me reeling... Here's some news: Iraq takes military reins from coalition - Yahoo! News
Anyone who doesn't recognize this as a farce and a political stunt isn't paying attention.
